Anyone know who owns the rights at this point? Maybe a gofundme to buy and put online for posterity?
(I'd also like a set)

I have reached out to Denis to see if he is still interested in this. Will update the thread once I know.

Thanks!
Andrew

Hmmmm.... Something much bigger at play here... Would be nice to hear from Dennis himself.

I bought my copy from Pelican. Why did Pelican stop selling? Did service providers that know Duane ask him not to sell? Unfortunately, it’s too small a world .... Perhaps, author was pressured to cease and desist?

Pelican has heaps of DIY guides on their site so not sure why they would be pressured to cease and desist. Iím going to do a complete thread when I do the second rebuild, but it wonít contain much video. The Pfix it DVD is useful but isnít a complete guide.

Good point. If he seeks employment with any Pcar service provider, quite sure they won’t want employees making/selling How to Video’s... Maybe his own employment opportunities in play?

Spoke with Denis about these, he's looking into it. Stay tuned.

Thanks!

I found a member who is selling me his set, but I'm sure there's more who'd like to get a set.

​​​​​I'd definitely be up for a set. Ideally if the vendor also had the option to download the video set instead of just DVDs. I don't even own a player!

I think most people are looking for engine rebuild videos, but I'm sure Denis can make all videos available once he get's to it. I suggested Vimeo on demand service to avoid to avoid DVD's altogether.

Thanks!

I never liked the music in the videos and found it annoying. That said, they helped me when I rebuilt my 964. There are some things I did differently after consulting some experienced engine builders on Pelican. I wonder if Denis' engine is still going strong?
